NJS Design & Party Rentals has spent the past 15 years earning their way into the hearts of brides in Huron, Perth, Grey and Bruce Counties and beyond.. Offering everything from invitations and favours to ceiling canopies, centerpieces and chair covers, this is one shop that’s difficult to leave.
Nancy Snell opened the doors to NJS Design & Party Rentals in 1997 with 800 square feet of space and a focus on graphic design and web development. Within the first two years, Nancy found her design side taking her in another artistic direction – wedding invitations, accessories and favours. “Then customers started asking for more wedding supplies such as wine glasses, table cloths, linens, backdrops, centerpieces…” Today, Nancy works out of 3500 square feet of space, almost entirely of wedding décor and rentals and with an inventory that is continuously growing.
In December 2007, Nancy became a Certified Event Rental Professional (CERP). It was important to Nancy to earn her certification, “The CERP program is the only certification program specifically created for those in the party and event rental industry. It is an in-depth program for individuals who seek an edge – the program features specific course content in eight disciplines.
The certification process is more than just an educational and training program.” Nancy says that CERP sets the standard for professionalism and expertise in the industry.
What a bride wants
NJS offers wedding rentals and décor for brides in Midwestern Ontario. With an inventory that could be described as ranging from simple, elegant and classic to contemporary and fresh in nature, NJS certainly has the options, styles and inventory that so many of today’s brides are looking for.
Just to touch on some of the items that you can find here, NJS rents table linens, overlays and runners, napkins, dinnerware, cutlery, stemware, backdrops, ceiling décor, chair covers, pillars, arches, centerpieces, guestbooks, garters, cake toppers, cake cutting and serving sets, invitations, candles, and even entirely themed props such as tropical palm & bamboo trees.
The personal touch
Nancy feels that it’s the personal customer service that truly makes a business successful. She works from a storefront that is actually located on her beautiful farm property (on Highway 4 just north of Clinton). “I try to fill every order as best as I can… I want to help you create a beautiful wedding day and so I’ll do absolutely anything I can to make sure that you get what you’re looking for” , explains Nancy.
In store, Nancy has most of her items on display for you to look at. So even though the NJS website is incredibly detailed and user-friendly, showing off almost their entire inventory, you can also see the items brought to life when you visit in person.
Nancy’s personality is fun loving and open. She’s up for anything that’s different or unique and when you work with her, it’s easy to find yourself having a few laughs together as you design your wedding. Her passion for this business shows in her work – which she admits is the result of being 110% customer service oriented.
Trends :: from funky to formal
From the day she opened NJS Design, it has been Nancy’s creative thinking and eye for design that has set the tone and direction of the company. She is known in her community for coming up with unique ideas and knowing what all the latest trends are. She has helped create funky, colourful weddings and more traditional, elegant ones. She says that the wedding’s atmosphere isn’t necessarily about an over-the-top theme or budget. It’s about style. “It could be just a simple wedding with not too much colour. As long as the colour is used the right way, it will be beautiful!”
Nancy welcomes brides and grooms to the design table as well, reminding them that she’ll try to make any creations they come up with happen for them. “I love trying something new!”
